    Following The Nerd - Jake Tanner Dec 7, 2013

    I'm going to step back on to my soapbox and say that if you aren't reading this series, you definitely should be. It has something for every fan of comics. It has touching moments, humor, character development, and more action than you could ever need in a book. It would be a shame if something this special could possibly go away and I'm not ready to see it end yet. Simply put? Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Mark Pritchard Dec 6, 2013

    So that's the Movement for another month. Lots of action, fascinating character development, some light in the Police state darkness and a great ending that is making me count down the days to the next issue. What else could you ask for from a monthly DC comic book? This is great stuff. Exciting, relevant, insightful and fun. Get a copy, get a copy now. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Matt Santori-Griffith Dec 9, 2013

    The Movement may not appear to be the flashiest book on the stands, but it deserves your attention (and hopefully some buoying first trade paperback sales) to keep quality work like this coming out month after month. Characters like Virtue and Katharsis, Vengeance Moth and Burden, need to be supported and not just because they represent traditionally underrepresented character types, but because they are truly unique and brilliant contributions to the DC Universe. These are our new Teen Titans or New Mutants, people. Lets get this book into more hands and dog-ear some pages with love. Read Full Review

    Shadowhawk's Shade - Abhinav Jain Dec 6, 2013

    Overall, highly entertaining and an issue that bounces back considerably from the slight slump of last month's issue. Great to see that the slump was just a minor blip on the radar. Read Full Review

    IGN - Melissa Grey Dec 5, 2013

    The issue's other story lines -- featuring the aftermath of Mouse's torture, comedically corrupt cops, Burden's sexual awakening, the Cornea Killer's daddy issues, and the kitchen sink -- don't fare as well, not because they're aren't interesting, but because there simply aren't enough pages in the book to give them the time they deserve. Freddie Williams' art is heavy on the details, which gives the issue a thematically appropriate crowded feel, and his vision of Coral City as an urban dystopia makes Gotham look like Disneyland. Hopefully, future issues will be somewhat more focused, because the elements for greatness are all there, they're just a bit overwhelmed at this point. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Dec 8, 2013

    There are a lot of good moments in this issue, but it still doesn't quite gel into the story that it obviously wants to be. With so many characters and so many plots ongoing, things never quite get themselves together, and even the big cliffhanger moment doesn't keep the Cornea Killer and police plotlines from feeling like they cut off mid-sentence. Still, with the art growing on me, The Movement #7 builds on the goodwill of the previous issues, making me want to see where it's all going, and making me enjoy the cast with all their flaws and foibles, earning 3.5 out of 5 stars overall. I hope Mouse is okay, too... Read Full Review
